Governor Obaseki of Edo State has disclosed that his government does not have plans to shut down schools, gatherings and worship centres yet as many states in Nigeria have done in reaction to the spread of the deadly Coronavirus in the country.
Obaseki made this known while he received religious leaders from the state in his office on yesterday. According to him, the State has put appropriate measures in place to prevent its citizens from being infected with the virus, hence, there’s no need for the shutdown.Obaseki
He noted, however, that if the need arises, the State may follow suit on the shutdown order, adding that the State is ready to combat COVID-19 if it eventually finds its way in.
”There is no plan to shut down places of worship except it becomes absolutely necessary. However, we would want to appeal that for the sake of your congregation, we should look at how to keep people from being too close from one another. It is possible to place visual services” he said
